For hundreds of adults ages 55 and over who visit each day, the Joslyn Adult Center in Burbank offers invaluable opportunities for education, exercise, and social engagement. Most of those onsite activities and programs take place indoors. But as the needs of those active adults change and grow, so does the need for a safe and inviting space to enjoy those experiences outside.

The ideal area for this purpose is adjacent to the center, but is in serious need of repair and redesign. The Leadership Burbank Class of 2014 is taking on this challenge,  converting the site into a vibrant space that will add a new dimension of enjoyment, health, and well-being to the lives of the 55+ community.  The project is a unique partnership between the private and public sectors, including the City of Burbank Park, Recreation, and Community Services Department and supporters like you.

About Leadership Burbank

Leadership Burbank is a community-based organization that offers a nine-month leadership training program for people who live or work in Burbank.

Through a hands-on curriculum, leaders and emerging leaders have the opportunity to enhance their personal and professional skills, gain a deeper understanding of community dynamics, and build a network of colleagues and associates throughout our city.

It is hoped that graduates will use the insights and contacts they develop through this program to enhance performance in their current endeavors and to enrich the community by involvement with local civic, government, business, religious and/or nonprofit groups.
